Whole School Overview 2020-2021
Science at Grange Primary School
Our Science Subject Leader is Miss S Taylor.
She supports colleagues in ensuring that the children have regular opportunities to explore scientific concepts and develop their skills through discrete science lessons and also as part of topics or themes, where the subject content is suitable.
We also enjoy visits, visitors and special events linked to Science.
We follow the National Curriculum for science - follow the link below to the DfE website for full details.
Primary Science Programme of Study
Purpose of study
A high-quality science education provides the foundations for understanding the world through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics. Science has changed our lives and is vital to the world’s future prosperity, and all pupils should be taught essential aspects of the knowledge, methods, processes and uses of science. Through building up a body of key foundational knowledge and concepts, pupils should be encouraged to recognise the power of rational explanation and develop a sense of excitement and curiosity about natural phenomena. They should be encouraged to understand how science can be used to explain what is occurring, predict how things will behave, and analyse causes.
The national curriculum for science aims to ensure that all pupils:
- develop scientific knowledge and conceptual understanding through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics
- develop understanding of the nature, processes and methods of science through different types of science enquiries that help them to answer scientific questions about the world around them
- are equipped with the scientific knowledge required to understand the uses and implications of science, today and for the future
